Question:

How long does it take to resolve a construction accident case in North Augusta?

Answer:

Construction Accident Settlement TimelineI had a client call me last week who had been badly injured when they fell off a scaffolding while building a hotel in Charleston, South Carolina. The client asked me how long it would take to resolve a construction case in the state of South Carolina. If you’re reading this, you may have a similar question. I’ll share with you what I shared with that client.

The statute of limitations in South Carolina is three years to either settle the case or file a lawsuit. Many factors go into the length of the case. Many times, we don’t start negotiating with the at-fault party until the client reaches maximum medical improvement. We don’t want to settle a case, and then the client needs another surgery or more medical treatment. Factors such as medical bills, medical treatment, limitations, lost wages, and how reasonable the at-fault party’s insurance company is acting and how clear the at-fault party’s liability all come into play.

If you have any questions about a construction accident or how long a case against a construction company will take, give us a call. We’d be happy to help.
